After you become engaged, you might have an idea when you want to get married – or what your favorite colors are to use in the ceremony or reception. While you can do absolutely anything you want in your wedding – after all, it is your day! – there are some general styling tips that help you narrow down color choices depending on the season.
These color options typically mimic the fashion world in that you will find pastels in springtime, vibrant and citrusy colors throughout summer, and deeper tones for fall and winter. While many brides usually have a few favorite colors they want to incorporate, other brides look to the season to create a gorgeous color palette. There are some other factors to consider when choosing your colors, too. For example, if your venue has a distinct architectural style or is painted with certain colors, you will want to customize your palette to suit the environment.
One thing to consider is the flowers available at your desired time of the year – you may find that your favorite rose isn’t available in January, which is when you wanted to hold your wedding. The wedding colors you choose should always complement your blooms and foliage throughout the ceremony and reception.
Color combinations are always fun, but think about the season you’re getting married in when narrowing down options – such as pairing red and green, which are typically winter/holiday colors, during the heat of summer!
